  • The 2021 #MedMo Reopen The World Tour (#MedMo)

    Industrious Bryant Park off Fifth

    $20.00

    We're Baaack!
    That's right folks, we are doing live events again. Join Us and let's catch up, see some startups, discuss where we are and where we are going and raise a glass to everyone that helped us get here. Many more ticket types, discounts and sponsorship options are on the eventbrite version of this page at http://bit.ly/medmonyc

    IRL and Virtual Together
    We will livestream the event as usual via Zoom and host a clubhouse discussion as well. Since it costs less to do virtual, if you want to participate through Zoom, please purchase the ticket on the eventbrite site. This allows people to engage with the MedStartr team and panelists during the event, ask questions, post comments and more. People on clubhouse (MedStartr.club) and watching the livestream can attend for free, as always. Being in the room is much better, but after piloting the triple platform event at our Kickoff in Chicago, we have to say it was pretty great and will keep doing it!

    Everyone is a Pitch Contest Judge!
    We believe that when we connect, we will collaborate and create the future of healthcare better, faster, and in more ways than alone. We also think the wisdom of crowds of healthcare enthusiasts are better at judging than just a few people. You can do it here: bit.ly/mmjudge
